I can use thunderbird then.

I suppose the following was in reply to this:

>What if you setup a minimal VM for the mailserver?  It would have an
independent IP and be accessible via tor locally and externally wouldn't
it (if the routing is setup properly)? 

Tell me more. How would the routing need to be set up?

> I used to use my own mailserver to send/receive but ended up having to
quit simply because most of the recipient email systems would reject my
sendmail - it wasn't registered so (I assume) the systems (yahoo, gmail,
etc) probably thought I was a spam house or something and so would
reject any mail I attempted to send.

That's helpful to know. Are you saying the recepient wouldn't even see
mail from me in their spam folder?

it may tend to break your anon unless you religiously keep that FQDN on
tor so that no hostname search will ever pull up your real IP.

No, because I haven't set up the server yet. I'd like to plan out
everything first to make it fully anonymised. How do I keep the FQDN on
